Description:

A new road in the Serengeti? A map and an educational lesson for students of all ages. From National Geographic: "Every May when the dry season starts to settle over Tanzania, great herds of wildebeests, zebras, and gazelles head northward, leaving the Serengeti National Park for greener pastures in Kenya. As the rains return in November, so do almost 2 million animals. Now their migration path is the focus of a debate over the proposed construction of a commercial highway. The government says such a road is needed to link the remote Lake Victoria area to ports on the Indian Ocean." Use this lesson's questions and live web map to dig into the pros and cons of the road.
